There is no shortage of black fountain pens, but the Aurora 88 Satin Black takes it up a notch with beautiful rose gold trim and a solid 14k rose gold nib. The 88 is a gorgeous pen that Aurora has been refining for the last 60 years. The solid rose gold nib is intricately engraved, and the piston filling mechanism allows for easy refilling. The pen’s ink window allows you to see exactly how much ink you have and Aurora’s Hidden Reservoir allows you to release enough ink to write almost 2 more full pages. It is the perfect combination of form and function, a solid daily writer with enough class for a black tie event.
